‘On the Incarnation’, one of the most famous books in all Christian history, was written by an equally famous saint – beloved of the Egyptians – St Athanasius the Great of Alexandria.
St Athanasius wrote many books, three of which are particularly famous. The first is called ‘Against the Gentiles’ where he argues against the pagans, the second is ‘On the Incarnation,’ where he speaks about the incarnation of Jesus Christ, and the third is ‘The Life of St Anthony’, where he tells the story of the great monk St Anthony. Because of his constant rivalry with emperors, Athanasius earned the Latin title ‘Athanasius Contra Mundum’ which means ‘Athanasius Against the World’. Because of his contribution to Christian theology, Athanasius earned the Coptic title ‘Athanasios Pi-Apostolikos’ which means ‘Athanasius the Apostolic.’
